"It's a talent and recruiting agency, but I like to call a talent agency because first and foremost, I think what makes us different is we are trying to appeal to the talent down there, much like a CAA (creative artists agency.)"   (20:46) Tim Miller

 

"I think our message resonates. They see that we care about their career. We wanna help them find an industry."   (25:37) - Tim Miller

 

"We want to help people identify opportunities."   (24:13) - Tim Miller

 

"What you are seeing is that the people with deep pockets, um, are, are able to attract talent and, and, and talent is moving at a frequency. It's never moved before. Loyalty lasts only so long."    (35:05) - Tim Miller
